W-3-W - The Whiskey Rebellion

On 8th June 2019, the spirit of "The Whiskey Rebellion! can be savoured by getting into the "spirit" and keying up your mic and listening our for the callsign W-3-W - or Whiskey Three Whiskey.

The relevant spirit here is good old American moonshine and whiskey - and the call sign you'll hear is from the special event station of the Mountain Amateur Radio Club in Maryland.

The club will be marking the 225th anniversary of the Whiskey Rebellion, the infamous uprising by farmers in the Appalachian Mountain region who were pushing back against taxation of alcohol imposed by the then-new American government.

Whiskey operators expect to be on 75, 40 and 20 meters SSB as well as other bands, depending upon conditions.
